Belkin Grip Vue - a TPU Sleeve for iPad

I am sucker for bags or sleeves. When Belkin finally finished the TPU sleeve for the iPad I had to have one. So here they are. Get them while they last. The Leather Folio I recommended a while ago is completely sold out. :-)

What makes the TPU material special? It looks much like a silicone sleeve, but the material is much harder and glossy. While a silicone sleeve is too soft to stay in shape, the TPU material does not give much way. That's also the reason why they just became available. Belkin had to have physical iPads to make the tools. A drawing was not good enough to make a hard sleeve.

What you see below is an iPad inside a grey transparent TPU sleeve and on top of it a white iPhone in a clear TPU sleeve. Both add a lot of "grip" to the device so you are unlikely to let it slip. If you do drop it, the screen does not touch the ground on a flat surface. My iPhone has survived a few drops without a scratch, but I am not testing with the iPad. :-)

The material is so glossy, that you can see the ceiling light reflected on the iPad.

Are there any problems if you put one of the devices in a dock?

Since the iPad is thicker, when it's inside ANY sleeve, a dock does not work. You can connect the sync cable or a headset, but not a dock.

If you want to use a dock, get a sleeve where the iPad slips in and out easily. In that case I recommend the Belkin Leather Folio. It's better than a bag because you don't have to take it out to use it, and it's still easy to remove and put it in the dock.

Danke für die Empfehlung. Klasse Teil, ich habe mir heute eins für mein iPad besorgt. Es hat nur einen Nachteil: das Plastik dünstet heftig aus.

Der Shop taugt nix. Einfach woanders kaufen, z.B. Gravis:

BELKIN GRIP VUE CASE TPU, CLEAR, FÜR IPAD
